Pember's Botanical Oddities

We are calling them "oddities" because we find it strange that Mr. Pember collected garlic, gourds and cactus skeletons. We find it fascintating that found in his collection is a boxwood stem/leaves on a card with a handwritten note stating that the boxwood comes from "Washington's garden" in Mount Vernon, VA. There's no date and only a "Presented by Mrs. A.D. Frisbie, Cambridge NY" (Alonzo D.; wife Frances L.) on the back. Also, very interesting is heather from Scotland, and a poppy anemone from Palestine. This round of specimens will be on exhibit until February 18, 2017. Please stop by the museum for a visit.
